It is really dissapointing and disheartening to see an administration and school board that will not provide leadership!  To the recent committee members and parent group welcome to the world of professional educators where committees have been developed only to have recommendations or input shoved aside!  The District has a long history of this happening!

To have two new board mebers blame the cuts, “non-renewals”, on the negotiations process shame on you!  To Mr. Mikolai, when you blow smoke you can expect fire! I would like to see a list of teh reassignments published this fall in this paper. It is an administrations responsibility and a school boards duty to ensure leadership for ALL employees not a few!

Raises in negotiations should have been a deal breaker!  Non-negotiable period!  To take care of a few at the expense of losing certified and classified staff is deplorable!  For those negotiating the raises and taking them shame on you!  I hope you have to look people in the eye who are gone and those being reassigned, and explain the selfishness of taking raises in this economy at the expense of their jobs.

Scenic closing and the 4 day week alone would have ensured budget productivity not to mention saving over $3 million from the list above.  I am saddened by the lack of leadership and the lack of respect for classified and support staff who help certified people do their jobs in the classroom.  When extra duties are assigned to help kids by administrators this fall I hope those taking the raises are not sitting in the lounge bitchin’ and moanin’ about it!  If you do…...Shame on you!
